Throat Culture starts its shows off with a series of disclaimers. The first establishes an imaginary "splash zone," setting aside the first few rows of the Arellano Theatre as a place where the audience might not actually get wet, but instead will probably have some sort of food-esque substance chucked at them.

At first there was skepticism. Really, a musical, Witness? And a student-written one at that? Could they really pull it off?
